December 12, 2017Creating an Edible Still Life with Liz Barbour, demonstration and sampling


Learn how to turn your holiday buffet table into a beautiful work of art. Watch as cooking instructor Liz Barbour demonstrates how to use found objects, fruits, vegetables, fine china, fresh herbs and flowers to create a three-dimensional still life for you and your dinner guests to enjoy.

Following Liz’s demonstration, she will offer a cooking demonstration of two seasonal recipes. The finished recipes, works of art in themselves, will be placed onto the Still Life buffet for all to taste and enjoy. Add in Liz’s easy cooking technique tips and you are on your way to creating great meals you can prepare at home. Liz will bring copies of her new cookbook “Beautifully Delicious” along for purchase.

The set designer wanted neglected grasses for the stage and I had plenty of them, so my plants are making their stage debut!

Hi Everyone,
Just a reminder that our opening meeting is Tuesday September 12th,one week from today!!! We have several people who will be making arrangements for our “Books in Bloom” theme.
It’s not too late to join in on the fun, so let me know if you’d like to make an arrangement. (kabobryan@gmail.com)
Remember it can be based on any kind of book you’d like.Take a walk outside and see what inspires you.
As of now I have the following members signed up to participate:
Beth Coz, Lisa Willwerth, Deb Digiovanni, Lenore Kepler, Janet Groth, Maureen Terrill, Anne Gilson (and helpers?), and yours truly.
Also remember to bring something for our Fall Plant Swap. This should be a perennial from your yard (or a friend’s). Something tried and true that you’d like to share and then bring home something new for your own garden.
Lastly, remember to come prepared to sign up for the October Fall Wreath Workshop which will be run by Cindy of Gordon’s Florist. The cost is $25.00 for materials.

Another zucchini recipe

 Fresh from the Garden Zucchini Squares

Have you ever planted something in your vegetable garden and wished it would stop producing? If the answer is yes, the vegetable could be Zucchini Squash and I am at that point right now. Here is a new way to use up you Squash that your family and friends will love and it does freeze well also. This will work well as a side dish vegetable with your favorite meat or fish dish.

5 large or extra-large eggs
½ cup of oil
¾ cup of shredded Parmesan cheese
5 cups of zucchini squash grated, 3 -10-inch squash
2 cups of regular Bisquick, not low fat
1 clove of chopped garlic
1 medium onion finely chopped
½ teaspoon of salt and pepper
½ teaspoon of dried basil or 1 teaspoon of fresh

1} Combine your cheese, eggs and oil together in a large mixing bowl. Stir in your Bisquick and Zucchini squash, mix well. Add all the remaining ingredients and mix well until uniform looking.

2} Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly butter a rectangular baking dish 8″ by 13″ or 9″ by 12″. Pour the mixture in the dish and level. Bake for 35 minutes or until the top is lightly browned.

3} Cool a bit and then cut into 2-inch squares and serve. Sprinkle a bit more Parmesan cheese on square and a leaf or two of fresh Basil for a great tasting side vegetable. Enjoy!
